I'm 26 and a bit weeks pregnant now. I only work weekends.
I have a six year old and a four year old.
My job involves standing for long periods (not stationary).
I can only sit down on my designated breaks.
I usually work an eight hour shift.
The facts :P
Anyway, I've started stressing about work. I've always suffered with low sugars/low BP when pregnant. And I've been having drops every day again.
My lower back is killing me too. Lifting things has my stomach hurting for hours afterwards (bub is very low).
Essentially I feel like a needy pain in the rear.
I'm casual too so the hours could be taken off me in a second if I'm not flexible enough (and I'm not that flexible as it is!).
I'm just stressing I guess. When did you stop working?

23 weeks mainly cause of mistreatment from my boss. It was office work, stressful and lots of sitting so my lower back was bothering me too....

I was about 32 weeks pregnant it was in the middle of december bub was due in feb. I was working full time and was driving 30 mins to and from work. I also had problems with my feet swelling just sitting at my desk they would swell like balloons. My doctor wrote me letter saying I had to finish early.

I finished work at 37+5.
I was able to stay that long because my job is in admin and not demanding at all.
plus my work doesn't offer paid may leave, so I'm only getting the ppl, and I'd rather spend more time at home with my daughter when she's born than before.

With DS I quit full time work at 36 weeks. With DD I only worked one day a week and my last shift was on my due date.

I was 35 weeks pregnant, and so OVER it. I couldn't wait to finish work but I think if I finished any earlier I would have been bored.

30wks for me but this was more so to accommodate a holiday we had booked. I was not happy at all and stressed big time so it was handy having the holiday as an excuse

My first I finished at about 30 weeks due to SPD and then my 2nd I was only part time lowered my hours from about 15 weeks and stopped completely at about 35 weeks

With DD I finished at 37 weeks and with this bubs I'll finish at 38 weeks. I have a laid back office job so for me the stress isn't a factor, just the money.
My back and PGP are causing me grief though so I'm hoping I make it through to 38 weeks this time.
